The Loudoun Youth Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Matthew Brown, will present the sixth annual Ensembles for Everyone program Saturday, March 18, at Stone Bridge High School.
The program is a fun, interactive concert for children of all ages, including those with special needs. It’s an opportunity to expose children who cannot sit quietly for a full symphony concert to the wonder of classical music. The concert, from 4-4:45 p.m., includes the popular Rossini Overture to the Barber of Seville, Smetana’s Moldau (the River) and a sing-along. The audience will be encouraged to dance and participate using percussion instruments.
After the concert, children will be able to participate in a drum circle hosted by A Place to Be and visit a musical “petting zoo” and try musical instruments provided by Music & Arts. Participants can also enjoy musical craft items created by Cool Spring Elementary fifth graders participating in the “One to the World” project.
Admission is free but registration is required at loudounsymphony.org.
